Just A Quickie

While in prayer this morning I was made mindful of how fragile we all are. How open we are to the shortcoming of the human condition. Selfishness, pride, greed and resentment, just to name a few. This journey is much like being placed in a canoe in a stream with a steady current, the current being the way that offers the least resistance. How easy it is to go with the flow and how hard it is to fight it. Yet our calling is to fight it, fight against our own shortcomings, fight against that which does not come from God. I was also made mindful that Jesus said that whoever had seen Him had seen the Father. That is an amazing statement and yet it rings so true. Jesus also said that the words that He spoke were not His own but of the Father and then He summarized it all by saying, and I paraphrase, “and this is the will of the Father, that you love one another like I have loved you”. Another amazing statement. Fighting against our own nature and fighting against that which is so easy to follow is designed to make us aware of our need for God, His guidance, His strength, His perspective and most importantly, His love. The journey is really the development of a dependency, the development of a relationship, nutured in love. I wish I understood more. God also made me mindful that He would honor His word and that He heard my prayer. For now, this is enough. Through His grace, the thread of connection between He and I and those that I lift up to Him in prayer, is maintained. And I will believe Him because He is the only light that shines in the darkness of this world. I don’t say that in a negative way, I am not in dispair, just aware. God bless you all.

    Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, such as you
    wrote the ebook in it or something. I feel that you simply could do
    with a few % to drive the message home a bit, however instead of that,
    that is fantastic blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

  3. I know that I was one of those that you lifted up in prayer during this time Dad. Thank you. Thank you for never giving up on me. Praise Jesus!
